The reversals the characters suffer across the movie’s running time are epic, and the movie’s finale unfolds to genuinely startling effect.

The film is a muddled social-protest thriller that tries to bridge the corrupt machinations upstairs with the desperation of the streets, and can't find a way to connect them convincingly.

Cut Throat City is still an ambitious and volatile film, an atmospheric survey of the thankless world of the rich and the damned.

RZA's trenchant take on the synergistic interaction of poverty and greed gradually loses focus as it devolves into a familiar account of warring gangsters, corrupt politicians and a city struggling for redemption.

"Cut Throat City" ends on a note that's too clever by half, but that doesn't undercut all the vibrant, rough-edged, impressive storytelling that led to that moment.
